Sweet and Gooey Parsnips
1 lb. parsnips
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Prepare the Ingredients:
Scrape or peel the parsnips, then cut them into sticks about the size of your little finger. Dry well with paper toweling.
In a heavy 10-inch pan, melt the butter; then add the parsnips, shaking to coat. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Cover tightly and saute on medium heat for about 5 to 10 minutes. The parsnips should be tender and gooey, and slightly carmelized. Add salt and pepper to taste.
